So you've all (well most) had the TC4 FT for a bit now. How do you all find it runs, especially on carpet? Also, in your opinions, now you've got the car, do you think it's the best car you could have got? if not what would you prefer?

I do like the look of the TC4 FT and would like to get one in many ways. Have heard there are issues with the quality and corner speed though.

Your opinions/advice would be appreciated

Default TC4 Problem

I know this is probably in the wrong thread/forum, but I figured I would put it where it was closely related.

I have a problem with my TC4. It is the RTR, but when I race, my rear gearbox opens up and the back end scrapes against the ground/carpet. I'm guessing that the screws don't hold well enough and that is what the problem is. If there is anyone who can help me, thanks!

BTW, I am sorry for posting this in the wrong place if it is. Please excuse this, because I am a newbie.

You could either a) try putting a little cyanocrylate glue in the holes for the screws, letting it dry, then rerun the screws..... b) use 5-40 screws instead of the stock 4-40....but the problem here is that the heads might be a little large, which means you'll have to open the holes in the gearbox top slightly or turn down the heads of the screws.... c) get new gearbox halves and be really careful not to strip those holes

did you get it used? It just sounds like it to me. . .

I would also check to see that the right screws are being used to hold the diff halves together - make sure there's 1/4" or so of thread extending through the top to the bottom. . .

It's one of the top designs out. Arguing which car is "better" would be like comparing Williams, Honda BAR and Ferrari in F1. They are all in the top bracket and all are capable of winning.

As far as kit quality, it's 100% a-ok. The complaining is coming from the XRay crowd that expects each and every part to fit perfect 100% of the time. The filing and hand-fitting of the front steering knuckles takes about 5 min out of your life. NOT a big deal.

Lastly, the car has zero problems with corner speed. It's the people who don't know how to setup a TC, take it to the track with the kit-default setup and expect to win.

All I can say is that out of the top "luxury" TCs, he TC4 Factory Team is the best deal as you get more for less.

Box setup can be a good place to start sometimes. With rubbers I just needed a few key changes from box Team kit setup and the car is great, Still struggling a bit in the high grip though (I'm beginning to think thats because its a stock Team Kit or I need to make some bigger changes in setup)

Question for guys who have had both cars: What are all the differences between Team and Factory kits? On track and off track?

If you're racing, don't even bother with the team (tub chassis) kit. The difference is night and day. Get the factory team car, use the steel diffs (no matter what) and run the setup they suggest.

I'm still running the tub and am doing well considering my experience and budget. If the FT conversion really works wonders I'll be kicking some A double-S

I've heard mixed reviews about the FT. One guy told my friend it was great and told me it didn't make much difference . Then another guy says its great...(then again, he is sponsored by AE, LOL)
